in which the month ends // july 2015 + august goals

if you’re wondering, yes, i am still alive.

i have somone -rather a lot of someone’s – to blame. they are called school. my school likes to burden their students with projects just one week before their exams. isn’t that wonderful?
i did not have time to sleep much less blog – i’m working on that now, time management or whatever – so that explains the lack of posts.
but let’s stop talking about me and let’s get on with the books!

    I understand – sometimes it’s so hard to get everything done for school. I read The Girl with All the Gifts in July too, and I thought it was so good! I really liked all the action, and the Zombie Apocalypse elements were really cool. I didn’t find it very scary though, but I don’t mind 🙂

      School can be stressful but I’m trying to balance it and blogging. It’s not as great as I hoped to be 😦 Anyway, thank you for commenting!
      The Girl With All the Gifts was amazing! I found it scary bc zombies are my worst nightmare. Thanks for checking my blog! 🙂
